-Short-lived -Low durability -Cost vs value is 1 grinder per year, for me
I purchased one Cuisinart DBM-8 and had to return it because it stopped working after only a few grinds. BBB replaced it free of charge. This second one just kicked the bucket after not even 1 year's use. It has been put through approximately 3lbs of coffee. This is not the first Cuisinart coffee-making appliance I have had issues with. I also purchased the (Cuisinart® Grind & Brew Thermal™ 12-Cup Automatic Coffee Maker), which I had to return at least 3 times, mainly because the grinder would jam up. This is what happened to my DBM-8. I won't purchase another cuisinart product again.
